$121 Million from Bicycle Tourism

A study published in March 2017 called Economic Benefits of Active Transportation shows that bicycle tourism in Utah generates over $121 million in economic output or total sales, 1,500 jobs, and $46 million in income earned. Overall, bicycling generates $425 million and creates 3,500 jobs. The study also looks at health impacts of bicycling, as well as case studies of two trails: the Murdoch Canal Trail and the Dead Horse Point trails.
